Justin Rosolino – New York Subway Girl Song lyrics

Killing time on the long ninety-nine
Letting my memory wander
In the seat by the conductor she reminds of another
Woman that turned me over, yeah

Takes me back to the girl I knew
And I thought she'd do no wrong
She could hold my feet to the ground, yeah
But then she was gone

I could swear by the way she brushed her hair
She was my yesterday lady
But it's three in the morning and my senses are swarming
I guess my vision is fading

You can't say I'm the only one
Who has a hard time getting along, yeah
When I'm lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely

It's a part of the human predicament
I try to find me in her arms
Never see that like me she's got soul-searching business of her own
It's a sin to expect such a miracle
From a girl trying to find her way
Just like me she's in a need of the hero to save the day

Wasn't wanting to walk by her side
Wanted her to carry me on her shoulder
It was a two-way addiction craving love without distinction
Making the woman my center

Came to her with a broken soul
That I thought she'd be able to heal, yeah
Just like me she's in need of the spirit's love to make it real

It's a part of the human predicament
I try to find me in her arms
Never see that like me she's got soul-searching business of her own
It's a sin to expect such a miracle
From a girl trying to find her way
Just like me she's in a need of the hero to save the day

My greatest crime was to think you were my Messiah
Sent here to right all my wrongs
But that's not your part you're playing, that's when healing came to save
I wish I knew all along

You can't say I'm the only one
Who has a hard time getting along, yeah
When I'm lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely

It's a part of the human predicament
I try to find me in her arms
Never see that like me she's got that soul-searching business of her own
It's a sin to expect such a miracle
From a girl trying to find her way
Just like me she's in a need of the hero to save the day
Of the hero to show the way
Of the hero to save the day

A hero saving the day
Take my lonely, lonely away
